Not what we expected.

We booked for one night and when we arrived that morning the inn was closed so we called the number and spoke to a lady but she couldn’t help us or give us any information. Only carvery was available on Sunday lunchtime/afternoon and no food available in the evening. We were charged £15 for the night but the website states £8 and does not mention the additional £7! We were unable to locate the recycling facilities, the metal gate to the field was difficult to open and close and the broken lock sat on top of it! On the plus side we were told there was a lake behind the site by another camper, and the trains make it interesting. We would not recommend this site due to lack of communication and the overpriced fee.

Great site, warm welcome, lovely pub and food and easy access to Lincoln.

Great site, warm welcome, lovely pub and food and easy access to Lincoln. We stayed here on 4 July this year for the first time. Sites and pubs had just reopened after lockdown and we wanted to go somewhere fairly close, for a night to see if we would be comfortable venturing out during the Pandemic. We needn’t have worried as Carly and the Railway Inn had everything well organised to ensure all measures were taken to keep everyone safe. We returned last night and took advantage of the site, pub and food again. We “stole” our Daughter’s dog again as he loved it there on 4th. The site was a little busier this time with more dogs on site so Ronnie didn’t quite get the run of the field again but he still loved his walks around the lake. We had a lovely meal at the pub and settled back in the van for a lovely sleep before breakfast in the Motorhome and another walk around the lake. We love Lincoln and the Railway Inn and will be back again (with Ronnie obviously).

Great Railway Inn

Easy to find, lovely little site, very friendly welcome, no problem with the gate. Trains not a problem for me as live close to a railway line. Foot path runs along side site so easy for dog walkers, as this is a public footpath others use it and sadly do not always clean up after their dogs. I had an evening meal Saturday with a drink and coffee and on Sunday a Small Sunday lunch with a drink along with site fee the whole lot was £35 for the weekend. Overall very pleased, unable to comment of facilities used electric hook up but have own toilet and wash facilities. Well worth it.

A Fab New Yr.

Had a brill stay at the Railway yet again. So welcoming from Carly and Mick and the wonderful staff and locals. We ended up mixing with three lovely gents who made New Yrs eve what its meant to be. The music was ideal for all which Carly put on free gratis along with the lovely buffet. We will be back again beginning of Feb for a dogshow at Newark and then May BH. Thank you Carly and staff for making us so welcome AGAIN. Really enjoyed it. Happy New Yr to you all. Bryan & Ann. xx

Cheap and cheerful

The Railway Inn is a good little site. It’s a field behind a great pub with friendly locals and good choice of food. The price went up to £12.00 but club site not updated. The gate is somewhat difficult to cope with but once done keeps the site secure. The mainline from Nottingham to Lincoln and the east coast ports runs adjacent and there are up to 4 passenger trains an hour of either one or two car units. During the day we saw maximum 3 long goods trains. At night same again but unless you are really picky they won’t affect you. Earplugs worked for the boss. The staff at the pub are very friendly, know the area well and helpful. The site is straight forward, the pub with an outbuilding on the rear with a toilet and shower. We found it clean and well maintained. Our caravan has its own toilet and shower so no queues. Every day there is a special for £6.00. Main and a sweet. Excellent value. The regular menu goes from steaks to egg and chips. Drinks quite cheap as well. Great for a stopover or a few days. Park at the Waitrose to the north of Lincoln and use the bus pass friendly Park and Ride. 50p for the dog.
